July 27th, the day of celebrating our distillery in Saskatchewan
From a historical stand point, July 27th is quite a day. July 27th,1214, King Philip Augustus and the French middle classes rally against all odds and defeat Emperor OttoIV and his international coalition with King John of England. July 27th, 1694, British Parliament founded the Bank of England. July 27th, 1946, Gertrude Stein passed away. On the same day in 1953, the Korean war ended, and on July 27th, 2018, our master distiller Dustin Christianson, who works for the best distillery in Saskatchewan, turns 30!
Let’s celebrate one of our best team member’s birthday, and IT IS FRIDAY!
It is not an easy job to maintain the best distillery in Saskatchewan, but Sperling Silver always keeps a strict standard on spirits, and we have special tours for visitors. On this special day, we discuss with our distiller Dustin about how to be the top distillery in Saskatchewan.
Distiller Dustin Says:
“As I found out, it is relatively easy to create the recipe but it is an entirely different chemistry. Spirit is a conductor and sometimes an amplifier of flavors and aromas. What may have worked on the plate, doesn’t always work in the glass. You have to know what you are doing to keep the best distillery in Saskatchewan running. The first three years were spent doing a lot of trial and error. Now in our fifth year, our research and development in much more refined. We will spend months if not years developing new and better ways to improve our products, and always be the top distillery in Saskatchewan that bring our customers new things.”
